Yet another Bday card from the set I made for a friend
Here is another of the Birthday cards I made for my friend. She uses cards for the classmates of her son and daughter, so I made her 4 of each type.
They are all quite simple and straight forward, and I had a lot of fun making them. I do not use bold colours enough, so choosing bright, vivid colours for the boy cards was great fun.
This is another card made from my snippets, so it was just a matter of going through them and choosing colours and patterns that went together.
You may remember the stars from the last card. I off-centered and double layered the larger two I used here...Orange pop dotted on top of aqua in the top left and aqua on top of orange in the middle right. I have been punching and die cutting stars from my teensy snippets. It is such a great way to use up those tiny scraps.
My NBUS item is the Somewhere In Time, Birthday Celebrations stamp, used for the cake image.
This is a three dollar, dollar store stamp. There are about a dozen stamps in this package and I am looking forward to trying some of the other ones too.
I slid an unknown snippet of unknown blue jean DP under the sentiment paper...just to make the border wider. That way, the narrower snippet of striped DP on the bottom, fit the card.The blue jean material has a lovely texture and a shimmer to it as well.
